Tracked some car trips today, worked awesome. It showed my position to within a few feet.
Some things on my to do list for the GPS:
-More frequent GPS updates. At highway speed the waypoints are too far apart and it looks like I'm going off the road. I have a lot of delays, like 5sec, to make the LCD readable. I only have a 2x8 LCD on the unit, and i have to switch from lat/lon, speed/course, time/altitude. That loop takes 5 seconds and meanwhile the GPS is waiting. I think i will add code to log more often
-I think i need a push switch to scroll between the three possible readouts. The constantly switching display is kinda hard to monitor anyway.
-Put the speed column ahead of altitiude in the log file. gpsvisualizer wants to color my route for altitude, not for speed.
